Watch your bank activity!!

More than 100 cyber-criminals have your money in their marks!

A sophisticated attack on banks could install back doors on their servers and transfer money out of your accounts in a blink!

From Trend Micro: Customers of the following financial institutions are at increased risk: Accurint, American Funds, Ameritrade, Bank of America, CapitalOne, Charles Schwab, Chase, Citibank, eTrade, Fidelity, Fifth Third Bank, HSBC, M&T Bank, Navy Federal Credit Union; PNC, Regions Financial Corporation, Scottrade, ShareBuilder, State Employees Credit Union, Suntrust, The Huntington National Bank, United States Automobile Association, USBank, Wachovia, Washington Mutual and Wells Fargo.

Andy Williams R.I.P.

For those of you who grew up in the 60's, remember this.. your parents listened to a singer and entertainer named Andy Williams. Why, he even had a television show appropriately named the same.. "The Andy Williams Show".

Do you remember the "Cookie Bear"? Do you remember the "Andy Williams Christmas Special"? Do you remember his many albums, three of which obtained gold status? Do you remember the song "Moon River"?

Andy Williams passed away Tuesday night (9/25/2012) at the age of 84 from bladder cancer.

We don't all come from that time but many of his songs still resonate throughout the world. His works and his incredible talent will live on forever in the thoughts of those who he has touched. That includes almost all of us.

Rest in peace Andy. We'll miss you down here..

Twitter the new SPAM engine??

Lately my email has been getting less and less SPAM, but my Twitter has been inundated with it. Is this the end for Twitter?

Direct messages are flowing at a good 30 plus an hour offering me a chance to be one of the first to get an iPhone 5. Boy does that sound like a scam, but someone is going to click on one of these messages and get infected with something no doubt.

People do not see the risk here. They are basically prey for some criminal organization who will grab their banking and other information after they visit these links. They think anti-virus will protect them. WRONG!!

People are always targeted by scammers. They attack you from all directions, including your cell phone now. What is next?

It looks like Twitter has no way to control the message junkies at the moment. This is bad for them as many will simply close their accounts if they get too much annoyance from it and cannot control the SPAM like you can with email. Perhaps it is time Twitter installs a junk folder.. lol.

Twitter... time to fix this before it is too late. Those who act last act alone!

Neil Armstrong, R.I.P.

Neil Armstrong joined the space program in 1962, to achieve one of the greatest honors a man could dream of. That was the first man to step foot on the moon!

You probably have heard it a thousand times "One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind". These were the words uttered by Neil as he stepped onto the lunar surface in 1969.

Mr. Armstrong left NASA in 1971 to become a teacher of aerospace engineering. He was a modest man who really did not want to be in the spotlight. He just loved space, and loved being a part of a successful voyage. He was superman so to speak. Everyone knew who he was that watched him, but he kept pretty quiet about it all going forward.

Mr. Armstrong died on Saturday at the age of 82 after a failed heart surgery. Another great leaves our world for the next.

May your future explorations be as great as those you have already achieved Mr. Armstrong. Godspeed!

Victor Poor, R.I.P.

Victor Poor was a ham radio geek so to speak. He was modest, quiet and well versed in electronic design. Victor passed away on Friday, August 17th, 2012 of pancreatic cancer in the state of Florida.

What makes this man so special? Victor was also responsible for the Intel 4004 processor and the 8008 integrated processor as well. These were the beginnings of personal computing, and even stretched into the LEM-2 computer equipment that took man to the moon! What an awesome thing to be responsible for, eh?

At Grummen, home of the LEM, there were many who used Mr. Poor's creations to send man a quarter of a million miles into space and back again. One of them was an old friend of mine, John Pullo, who worked on the environmental systems with the S-CAT team. Oh, the memories and the incredible things we all did to make this world so interesting.

I was in Florida on vacation at the time of victor Poor's passing. He left Florida before I did, but he will never return.

Victor Poor is survived by his wife and his two children.

We will miss you Victor. Godspeed!
